"We've all been lost in a jazz fugue..."
Just a quickie to cover this most inspired of improv troupes - Austentatious. I've seen them a couple of times now (review #1 + review #2) and never failed to be highly amused by their work, as the six-strong company improvise a 'lost' Jane Austen story from a title given by the audience - this one was Darcy and the Pemberley Cartel - and let it wind its merry way into whatever shenanigans spill forth. I can't say much more about it than it is something you should definitely experience live and with a UK tour in the offing (dates and venues copied and pasted from their website below), you've no excuse. (London dates are here - generally the last Sunday of the month)
